Their service is focused around their mobile clients for Android and Ios. You can use the website for the basics like browsing, liking and commenting, but you can't upload anything.

What exactly do you mean with "see no way to use it via PC"? Is there's something missing or not working?

If you don't mind emerging a browser, Vivaldi runs a mobile version of instagram via browser. https://vivaldi.com/blog/post-on-instagram-from-computer/

yes thank you this should be enough to use it without a smartphone just with a regular PC.
---edit---
also some reverse engineering aspact of the story is that: 1. i have logged in and follow one user. 2. i told my friend to check the user 3. my friend got a follow recommendation on behalf the steps 1. and 2. so we have got friends now. Incredible how the neuronal networks can join 2 people together without cookies or other personality sniffing stuff.

Still reconsidering if i want to join that kind of neuronal friendship. Most people do...

You could always use something that's open source, decentralized and federated. Something like Pixelfed.social.
